For months, I've been working on this vignette-filled journey in search of "the objective truth" through historical characters relevant to our current political landscape.  Kali, the Hindu goddess of Time, Creation, Destruction and Power embraces her children in the midst of global power struggles; the politicians gamble, juggling honesty and suppression of facts, while masked terrorists ignite chaos and the Fake News channel craves an interview. TV president has his tiny thumb on Lady Justice's scales, imprisons the press and chips away at the fabric of Democracy, distracting the public with the antics of his cadre of advisors, political appointees and family goons. ┬áLiberty balances on a surfboard as immigrants depart through the Mexican wall.  Michelle Obama feeds information to the animal kingdom, as Senators gather around the fact checker.
